I am sure by now that you’ve heard me talk about the country, the climate, the faith and the children, but in truth I can only describe my experience as “Life Changing”.  I have deliberately been broad in my posts because there is so much to cover that it would not be possible to convey. So I’ll leave you with the last few photos from my final day in Uganda and at the Uganda Jesus Village.
A massive thanks to Frazer of Rockfish Streetwear, Marika from UJV and everyone who I …

This was my penultimate day in Uganda. I write this almost 3 weeks later and all I can think about is Africa. I cannot say enough about the children there and how much I loved their spirit and happiness with who they are. In contrast since I have been back in England I have witness selfishness, greed, anger and pettiness which stirs me up inside into something bitter.
This day was a visit to the school setup by the UJV. My visit was timed to be during their play time in …

A while ago a friend asked me to show him some abstract photos so he could put on his office wall. So I compied a short list and sent him the following. I hope you like them!

A photographer in Uganda. Day 5

Since I have returned to the UK, my friends have been naturally asking me about Africa and everytime I has to pause and really think about that question because I can’t give the same answer twice! The word “Awesome” and “Amazing” are such cliches that they do not serve to describe how life changing Africa was for this lowly Photographer!
Day 5 was more about interviewing the children and to ask them about their past. We were very sensitive to the fact that would should not force them to answer anything …

Day 4 was an opportunity to know the children a bit better. A football came was arranged (as much as things can be arranged in Africa) so it was entertaining to photograph them showing off their skills. Most of them were more fascinated by my origins and how my camera gear worked. What is surprisingly refreshing was although the children wanted to know everything, they remained respectful and never sulked or moaned like some children I know. They showed an astonishing amount of maturity which is both fascinating and a …

I had met some of the children yesterday so today was a better opportunity to spend more time with them. I deliberately did not ask about their past; I felt that whatever they would reply I would never fully understand their experiences. But when I met them, the most wonderful thing was how they really enjoy the company of each other and are just great children!! I see kids in England who are spoilt, crude, rude and do not appreciate how easy they have it, so for me it was …

Ahhh, Africa! It has been a long dream of mine to photograph in one of the most amazing and spiritually rich countries in the world. In my search for something that captures my heart (relationships comes to mind) I needed something that would just release my creative side. As much as I love Australia and South East Asia, it has always been Africa that conjured up great images in my mind.
This journey was as much about the people as it was about the land and it was definitely the people …

An opportunity has arisen which I can only describe as being from God. In a weeks time I will be leaving for Uganda to document Rockfish Streetwear’s first visit. RFSW is Christian clothing company that will be launched very soon. It’s founder, Frazer Evett, will be going over there to see, and more importantly feel, what the situation is like over there.
My main role will be split into two duties; photography and video with what I believe will be a 50/50 split. I would far prefer to photograph more but …

I had always wanted to visit historic Cambridge so an opportunity came along with my mate Kelly. She was meeting a friend of hers in town so I went around by myself. I happy when I’m taking photos in a city I’m unfamiliar with. Down one street I heard a street performance; my curiosity got the better of me so I had to see who it was. They are a band called C C Smuggler; they describe their sound as “Rag and Bone county n Blue from the shires…” I …
